Tutorial

 

Translation takes RNA that was transcribed from DNA and uses it to create proteins.  First, RNA is read in groups of three nucleotide molecules.  Each set of three nucleotide molecules code for an amino acid.  During translation, all of the amino acids that are produced from a linear chain of RNA fold into a three dimensional protein.
 
If RNA is like the blueprint for a house, Translation is the process of using the blueprint during the actual construction of the home.
